Mercedes launches EQC electric crossover output

On the course of electrification Mercedes-Benz overcame a massive breakthrough. On Monday popular auto-manufacturer made a proclamation about the kickoff of the manufacturing of the EQC compact crossover which is the first from EQ family of full-electric vehicles.As one would expect in the first quarter of the following year the EQC will appear at the USA administration.

With a minimal price in Germany of €71,281 ($79,786), the EQC is the first from the navy of 10 full-electric vehicles that Mercedes is likely to launch by 2025.

"With the start of production of the Mercedes-Benz EQC, we are turning the switch today -- for the electric mobility of the future," Markus Schäfer, Mercedes-Benz production and supply chain chief, said in a statement.

Mercedes can't flip the electrification switch soon enough.
Tesla Inc. dominates the luxury EV market with a trio of high-performance, buzzworthy models. Beyond Tesla, Mercedes faces a wave of coming EV competition from nearly every major automaker.

The EQC, powered by an 80-kilowatt-hour battery, has about a 280-mile range on a full charge, based on New European Driving Cycle estimates. Two electric motors generate a combined 408 hp, enabling a 0-to-60 mph sprint in 5.1 seconds. To reduce power consumption, the front electric motor is optimized for efficiency in the low to medium load range, while the rear motor adds sportiness.
